Never To Arise is a Death Metal duo based in Florida. Gordon Denhart and Mike Kilborn combine forces to discharge such an aurally crippling and melodic barrage of sound that a first listen without the proper preparation may leave the audience bereft of all sense and helpless. A brutal musical concoction that exemplifies not only the pureness of what “Death Metal” should be but what lies ahead for the future of the genre. “Hacked To Perfection” is at its core a release that is thematically and musically grounded in the ugliness, brutality and finality of death. Let the hacking begin.
